CV! Part 155 – Oscar Weekend! (Saturday-Sunday-Monday)

mad-hatter-a-very-merry-unbirthday-to-you-•••-its-13100549

Saturday, April 24, 2021 – Saturday!

4:20am: We slept for a few hours and then we woke up early, before 4:00am.

onemoresat

8:45am: We went back to bed.
The dogs got fed, the dogs went outside.
We drank a cup of espresso.


bobdylanelectric-1965-740x390

We watched “History Detectives” – an episode we’ve seen before on Rock and Roll stuff.
It features Bob Dylan’s Fender guitar from Newport ’65, a couple of Beatles’ autographs, and a Frank Zappa art piece. Great episode.

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!


The 2012 episode found out that the airplane pilot’s daughter had the guitar in New Jersey, and after a legal battle, she sold the Stratocaster at auction. Indianapolis Colts owner and Rock and Roll collector, Jim Irsay bought Dylan’s Newport guitar in 2013 for $965,000.

Irsay also bought Jerry Garcia’s one-of-a-kind “Tiger” guitar, made by Doug Irwin, at auction for $957,000 in 2002, and spent Five Million Dollars on some of David Gilmore’s guitars when they were auctioned for charity a few years ago. He has an amazing collection.


10:05am: We took the dogs outside again. We made another cup of espresso.
And then we cut up a pineapple, and ate a couple pieces.

12:25pm: We are chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs again.
We took them outside and now they’re napping.
We made another cup of espresso and ate brunch/lunch.
On the Menu: toasted onion bagel with lox and cream cheese, dill pickle,
celery & carrot sticks, Italian salami, and a black&white cookie

4:45pm: We took a long nap with the dogs. Then we took the dogs outside.
And we just made a cup of espresso.

5:20pm: SO FUCKING TIRED OF THIS SH*T.

8:15am: Sunday morning. Dogs got fed. Dogs went outside.
We drank a cup of espresso and some orange juice.  Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We ate a toasted onion bagel with cream cheese.

12:10pm: SUNDAY! SUNDAY! And we have liftoff.
We went back to bed and slept for a little bit. And then there was barking…..
We took the dogs outside. And now we are fully chill. But we are hungry too.
Choreboy is about to arrive, and now there’s some stuff to do around the house.

So, Choreboy did two loads of laundry and scooped all the poop.
He cleaned out the fridge, which was already pretty empty.
And then he did some dishes. He’ll be back tomorrow most likely for more.
It’s cold, and gray, and windy outside today.
We ate a toasted egg bagel with peanut butter and raspberry jam for lunch.
And we made some popcorn and drank a coke during the Oscars.

Questlove Oscar Trivia with Lil Rey
, play a game with the Oscar audience. Did “Purple Rain” win  an Oscar, and she swore on LIVE TV. No, the score was nominated, but none of the songs. THIS IS JUST AWFUL. Feeling really Diverse as they bulls*t on Live TV. Donna Summer for TGIF! “Let’s Dance” won an Oscar for “Thank G-d It’s Friday”. Glenn Close “Da Butt” and this must be set-up… she swore on Live TV too. Glenn Close just put the boogie in her butt!
“Glenn Close correctly identified a clip of Da Butt written by Marcus Miller and performed by the DC-based band Experience Unlimited (EU) from Spike Lee’s 1988 film, School Daze.”
Questlove is inspired. He directed the “Summer of Soul” documentary – short preview, and Zendaya for Lancome “Idole”, Flonase, Jeff Goldblum annoying you for Apartments.com, Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC Promo, ABC “The Good Doctor” promo, Diversity again, she’s jamming, for Grey Goose Essence, and now The Resorts World commercial!

Electric Company theme! Rita Moreno. BEST PICTURE nominees now. Okay.
Anthony Hopkins clip. “Judas” clip. “Mank” clip with Gary Oldman. “Minari” clip.

MUSIC WAS LIVE AND OFF THE HOOK!

Delta bumper – “air travel provided by”  
Senovva bumper – LED Walls “provided by”
And it pretty much sucked, and wasn’t very entertaining.
If we weren’t blogging it. We would have turned it off at the beginning.
No surprises. And not very exciting. Just pretty standard awards format,
with the usual COVID-19 adjustments, Nice that there was live audience, but it was STUPID and NO MASKS just sets a bad example for the public and will probably affect PUBLIC HEALTH. But, hey, lots of commercials, and lots of DIVERSITY. See Oscar isn’t so white…..
YEAH RIGHT. Alright, we’re done . That sucked. It’s going to be a ratings disaster tomorrow.
The dogs are sleeping here in the Home Office and we are hungry for dinner. 

8:22pm: “Oscars After Dark” following the Oscars. ABC is so damn DIVERSE!
300x169-Q100_e7be86f8d58f4a0318d3a99469d849d4
Trent Reznor, Jon Baptiste, and Atticus “After Dark”


9:20pm: We stopped, took the dogs outside,
and then went into the kitchen and made dinner.
And it’s drizzling a little outside. They said it might rain and they were right.

On The Menu: Breakfast for Dinner! Breakfast Burrito!
2 eggs over easy, bacon, and a quesadilla with salsa verde 
178966739_4697407930285736_3960988353607113068_n

We took the dogs outside again. And then they fell asleep.
And then we fell asleep…..

NO END TO THIS BULLSH*T. NO END IN SIGHT.
WE WON’T BE AT YOUR PARTY ON SUNDAY NIGHT!
ZERO CONTACT IS STILL THE RULE!
DO YOU THINK THAT I’M A FOOL?
DO NOT PARTY! AND HERE’S WHY:
IF YOU PARTY, YOU MIGHT DIE!

NOTE: We stayed the fuck home, and watched the Academy Awards’ Train Wreck.


Okay, here’s one for #StorySunday (on Monday):
Way back in the mid 1980s, we started gambling in Reno, Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas. And then we started working in the Hollywood film industry in 1989, and we met Frankie Valli and a old school “Friend of Frank’s” comedian named Joey Villa. Joey was friends with Meshulam Riklis and his wife Pia Zadora. Riklis was a corporate raider who bought the Riviera in 1973. Our friend Joey was booking the comedy room at the Riviera and also appearing in the “Splash” Revue stage show for many years, so when we visited him in Las Vegas in 1991, it was all VIP fun and a big party with Perry Como in the Penthouse. It was Old School Vegas, with real mobsters, and black tie glamour, at the Riv. “And now it’s all gone” They blew it up and tore it down, and now it’s a parking lot for the expanded LV Convention Center. Vegas just eats its own. So, we have a matching set of souvenir Riviera mugs, and ashtrays, and matches and even mini shampoo bottles from the many hotel stays. And sometimes we stayed next door at the El Morrocco/La Concha Motel or at another Strip hotel. And so we found this mug when thrifting, right before they announced the closing and demolished the hotel in 2015. We have so many crazy Las Vegas stories. They moved the Crazy Girls bronze statue to Planet Hollywood, so you can still see rub their butts for good luck. (if you’re interested you can read more about Las Vegas, the Riviera, and Joey Villa in our previous JoshWillTravel Blog Posts)

Monday, April 26, 2021 – PINK SUPERMOON TONIGHT (8:32pm PST)
Full Moon is named for the Spring bloom of the pink wildflower native to eastern North America: Phlox subulata (creeping phlox or moss phlox), also called “moss pink”

2:50am: Hello Monday morning, we’re up early. We fell asleep with the dogs for a little bit.
Not sure how long. It’s too early. So, we thought we’d update this Blog Post…. 

4:45am: Two hours later. And we decided to try to watch Disney/PIXAR’s “Soul” again.
Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues”
Mystics Without Borders and Moonwind Stardancer on the brink of madness!
NOTE: “Soul” was great. It was beautiful. And it had a great Disney ending.
soul

11:55pm: Recapping Monday. Nothing happened.
We didn’t mean to take the day off, but it happened.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We got the newspapers and the mail.
The housekeeper came. We took a nap with the dogs. We drank espresso.
Drink coffee. Drink water.
It was a nice day outside. And now it’s overcast and drizzling a littlest midnight.
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese for lunch. And we just made dinner.
On The Menu: Mac’n’cheese just before midnight (and we are done now)

Plus the actual Big Game, and the aftermath.
And then Sunday night if we don’t fall asleep.
There will be politics, and CoronaVirus info too.
So, Are You Ready? Are you ready for some Sunday Blog Post?

Friday, February 5, 2021
WE ARE ALL “SAFER-AT-HOME” – DO NOT TRAVEL!
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK!

START THE MUSIC> “Count Your Blessing and Smile” – George Formby

4:20am: Well we’ve been up all morning. We just had another espresso.
The Big Dog threw up twice in the Home Office in the last hour….
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK.
So, we cleaned it up along with a lot of swearing.

8:30am: We slept for maybe an hour…..
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK.
The dogs got fed and went outside. We drank a cup of espresso.
We made another cup of espresso.
We ate a toasted bagel with peanut butter and raspberry jam.

hunter-s-thompson-it-never-got-weird-enough

3:45pm: We tried to sleep and got woken up twice.
We haven’t had a decent night’s sleep in a week. And we have a headache.
We drank a cup of espresso. We took the dogs outside.
We are all chillin’ in the Home Office now.

“Lou Dobbs Tonight” was cancelled by FoxNews!
2 Days after a billion dollar lawsuit was filed.

Christopher Plummer RIP (Arthur Christopher Orme Plummer CC)
December 13, 1929 – February 5, 2021
He was 91 years old (and he was Canadian, born in Toronto)
We had the privilege to meet and work with him, Chris Lemmon, and Martin Landau RIP on the feature film “Firehead” back in 1990-91. He was a great actor, a total professional, and a very nice man. May the Four Winds blow him safely home.

Government Officials in Oahu, Hawaii:
COVID-19 UK Variant – one case confirmed, today (and there are more)

How’s your Friday afternoon?
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK.
Good Shabbos.

10:11pm: We picked up the grocery order at the market this evening.
Almost ready for Super Bowl Sunday now.
We got food and drink for the Big Game at home. STAY THE FUCK HOME!
And we might make an in-person market run before game time depending….
So the dogs got fed. And they were outside. And we ate dinner too.

On The Menu: Moroccan chicken, couscous, sautéed asparagus,
and peanut M&Ms for dessert. And later an espresso to drink.
Drink coffee. Drink water. Eat chocolate.

Screen Shot 2021-02-05 at 20.13.21

We are hanging’ with the dogs in the Home Office and now we are going to watch
“The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot” starring Sam Elliott
if we can turn off the YouTube. So much stuff going on.

The 2021 Puppy Bowl XVII on the Animal Planet channel
hosted by Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg!
Sunday at 11:00am PST – Are you Team Ruff or Team Fluff?

FOOTBALL PICKS!
OUR SUPER BOWL PREDICTION: as of Friday 11pm
(we are not liable for any gambling losses, this is for amusement only!)
Kansas City Chiefs will win 23-17 (so take the UNDER)
Tom Brady will CHOKE. “The Fix Is In” (yes, we said it)
There will be a lot of money bet on Brady and Tampa Bay,
so an interception or fumble, can make a big difference in a 4 point game.
And The Weekend (without an “e”) will have a special guest…. Beyonce?
Coin toss: Tampa Bay
First Score: Kansas City
First Quarter: 14-3 Halftime: 17-10
Third Quarter: 20-17 Final Score: 23-17
First Turnover: Tampa Bay (interception)
And we’re taking Team Ruff in the Puppy Bowl

“I’m done betting on Pete Townshend” – Cousin Sal
(2-1 odds that Pete would smash his guitar during The WHO’s Halftime show)


Friday Night (Super Bowl Weekend) watching JacobsLifeInLasVegas Livestream
from The Fremont Street Experience in Downtown Las Vegas:

So, here is Las Vegas (Glitter Gulch) – The Fremont Street Experience Downtown!
Super Bowl Weekend Friday night at 10:30-11:00pm and the COVID-19 Pandemic.
We’ve been saying for weeks that Las Vegas is a massive SUPER-SPREADER.
Frontline Casino and Hotel and Restaurant Workers haven’t gotten the vaccine yet.
Tourists from Los Angeles, and other parts of California, and Texas (where they don’t wear masks), and lots of other places where the CoronaVirus is not contained, travel to Las Vegas and THERE’S NO SOCIAL DISTANCING! MASK WEARING IS STILL HAPHAZARD, ALTHOUGH REQUIRED IN THE CASINOS NOW, so it’s better than it was before, but still SUPER-SPREADER. AND PEOPLE STAND AND SMOKE IN PUBLIC WITHOUT A MASK. There were a lot of Police, Sheriffs, Marshalls and other law enforcement out in force.
One Metro Bicycle Officer, wearing yellow, said he had been reassigned to Fremont Street and it was an “all hands on deck weekend” because of the Super Bowl, and the CoronaVirus.
There is also a heightened “terror watch” because of the Trumpers and large party crowds.
It made us very nervous to see the big crowds, and no operating metal detectors, or Security checkpoints/bag checks, which they had around the winter holidays and New Years.
And while there were lots of cops, the through streets and the streets around the bars and casinos outside of the covered pedestrian mall weren’t blocked off to vehicle traffic.
SORRY, NOT SORRY, THIS DOES NOT SEEM SAFE TO OUR WORRIED MIND!

And we also watched our interweb friend Damon “Smoke ‘N’ Scan” on YouTube:

STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK!

2:30am: ———— (we worked on this Blog Post all night and into the early AM)
3;35am: ————
4:45am: Time for “The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot”
Our eyes are tired from bluescreen and typing, so we need to stop now.

9:15am: We slept a little. We woke up. We took the dogs outside.
We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside again. We got the newspapers.
We made a cup of espresso and ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese.
OK, Saturday morning. The home heater triggered our asthma, and we woke up coughing and choking for air. We have a headache now.
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK.

1:30pm: We tried to go back to sleep, and may have for a little bit.
Then the mobile dog groomers came. Today’s the day for the dogs to get groomed.
The big dog got a power wash, and the little dogs are getting cleaned and cut.
So there was a lot of noise and commotion when the groomers arrived, and now we are waiting for them to finish with the dogs so we can go back to bed….
Oh, we made and drank another cup of espresso too.

3:15pm: Our calm is restored. We are ready for Saturday.
And getting hyped for tomorrow…
it’s our long-standing tradition to watch “Where The Buffalo Roam” the night before.
la-la-et-buffalo-roam-jpg-20140709

Recapping Saturday Night: (we didn’t write anything until after midnight)
We took the dogs outside. And they got fed their supper.
We took the dogs outside again. And we ordered a pizza delivery.
The pizza came and we ate some. It was pretty pretty pretty good.
And we have some leftover for tomorrow and the big game too.
And then we took the dogs outside again, and we had them in Home Office.
We watched some TV and then some YouTube Livestreams and then it was late.

“Tickets? Passes? And a key?” – “Must be some sh*t going down somewhere.”

On The Menu: We ordered an extra-large sausage and meatball pizza.
129032155_4271164916243375_8280116042557839694_o

We didn’t watch much news today.
We also stayed away from Twitter, until late in the day,
and then we escaped the Twitter storm ASAP, before we got too worked up….
Today’s topic:
WHY IS LOUIS DEJOY STILL POSTMASTER GENERAL?
WHEN WILL PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN FORCE THE
POST OFFICE BOARD OF (Trump Stooges) TO RESIGN?

THE GOP TRAITORS (REPUBLICANS):

And LOU DOBBS CANCELLED – Now do Hannity, Tucker, Ingraham and Pirro.
And there is more coming. (thanks to Don Winslow on Twitter)

“Are you ready for some football?” 

Sunday, February 7, 2021 – SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
Do not party with friends or family outside your bubble!

Screen Shot 2021-02-06 at 20.44.42
NOTE: This is a screenshot from Pompsie’s YouTube Livestream tonight.
SUCH A TEASE! STAY THE FUCK HOME! WE WISH WE WERE RIGHT THERE!
This is the Main Casino (table games) Salon for “High Rollers” and VIPs.
It was once upon a time one of our favorite places to play….
Caesars Palace used to be a world class joint
and the best Hotel and Casino in town.
But WHO LET ALL THE RIFF-RAFF IN? What happened to the class and style?
Okay, first they tried to turn it into Disneyland,
then they turned it into Disneyland for Adults,
then they forgot the first rule of running a casino in Las Vegas
(and this was told to me by a veteran pit boss way back when):
“IT’S ALL ABOUT BUTTS IN THE SEATS!”
The money is made in the casino. The HOUSE ALWAYS WINS IN THE END.
They monetized food & entertainment, and they cater to the “Burger King” crowd,
They nickel and dime the players. They even changed the rules to fix the odds.
The big corporate resorts forgot the Player’s Names and gave them plastic cards.
They took away the silver coins and gave them slips of paper with barcodes.
They added BULLSH*T RESORT FEES! They make people PAY-TO-PARK!
Clubs, and Ultra-Lounges, and Pool Parties became revenue streams.
Outside Attractions Opened…. drawing the tourists away from the casinos.
The “Law and Order” provided by the old Las Vegas Police and The Mob is gone.
CRIME, AND DRUGS, AND THE HOMELESS, AND GANG-BANGERS,
AND WORST OF ALL THE LOW-ROLLERS TOOK OVER.
Fast food joints and cheap souvenir (for big dollars) stores are inside the casinos.
They farmed out the retail space to any vendor who could pay the price.
They built huge shopping malls to maximize the square footage
and sell their “Made in China” crap to the unwashed masses.
JUST TRY TO GET A COMPLIMENTARY COCKTAIL!
OR A COMP ROOM OR COMP MEAL. “GOOD LUCK”

12:05am: Hey! We made it to Sunday.
We are chilling’ with the dogs in the Home Office just after midnight.
And it’s Super Bowl Sunday…. before it’s morning.
LOT’S OF HYPE. We made our picks. Not going to change them now.
We ate pizza, and we’ve been watching YouTube videos again.
Livestreams from Las Vegas…. SUPER-SPREADER EVENT EVERY NIGHT!

147226332_4461105277249337_1438810162235637657_o
Saturday night LiveStream from The Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas:
147126360_4461105283916003_3464495152085488892_o

12:50am: We took the dogs outside. And then we put the dogs to bed.
And we made an iced espresso. And we just ate a piece of cold pizza.
We did a lot of work recapping Saturday night and building this Blog Post.
These Blogs don’t write themselves and they don’t appear by magic….
It takes a long time to write, edit, add pics and other stuff, and then finish.
And we’ve really made it a habit to write everyday during the pandemic.
SEE OUR PREVIOUS CV! BLOG POSTS! THIS IS “PART 119”.
(it’s also our Blog’s 8th anniversary and soon we’ll reach 200000 HITS!) 

4:05am: We motivated and became CHORE BOY for just a little bit.
We did a load of laundry and then we cleaned and sanitized the kitchen.
We also CERTIFIED our EDD Claim online for our first two weeks tonight.
We haven’t mailed the check request form yet, and we don’t have a Debit Card, so we are not sure what to do, because if they send a Card and we send the check request form, you just know there will be some kind of problem or delay.

5:50am: We just got busy in the kitchen: we cut some vegetables (celery and carrot sticks), decanted a big can of pineapple juice into a plastic bottle, and made a pot of mac’n’cheese with bacon for later today. And we made a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

6:20am: We woke the dogs up and took them outside.
Then we fed them their breakfast and took them outside again.
We got the newspapers. And now the sun is coming up.

Screen Shot 2021-02-07 at 10.43.08

10:15am: We tried to run two errands this morning, but only completed one.
We tried to pickup our mail at our PO Box, but the Post Office lobby was locked, and there was a posted notice about changes…. don’t know if it’s COVID or if it’s still the USPS fuckery.
So we didn’t pick up our mail….
And we made a supermarket run before the game today,
to get some things they didn’t include that we wanted and to stock up on some other things.
NOW WE ARE READY WITH FOOD AND BEVERAGE.
We heated up 3 slices of leftover pizza and ate them for breakfast with an iced espresso.
And we took the dogs outside again, and now we’re all here in the Home Office at 11:00am.

2:05pm: And we are awake again. We just took a nap. We drank a cup of espresso.
Time for the pre-Game festivities. But first, we took the dogs outside for some business.
It’s a beautiful day outside! Blue skies, totally clear, 72 degrees and sunny!
And now it’s 2:30pm! Let’s go inside and watch FOOTBALL!

Are you ready Freddy?
Are you ready for some NFL Super Bowl Football?

NFL Football and the Super Bowl is the only thing. National Holiday.
You’ll probably go apesh*t for The Weekend (without an “e”) on Monday….
AND THEY’RE HAVING IT IN FLORIDA INSTEAD OF CALIFORNIA.
And they’re going to have fans in the stands. No worries about COVID-19.
The $uper Bowl (NFL Football) is all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
Sports wagering is legal now, so there’s that too. Public Health be damned.
THE TEAM OWNERS, THE CORPORATIONS, SPONSORS, NETWORKS,
AND ADVERTISERS MADE BILLIONS DURING THE PANDEMIC.
(Some teams 
even got Government Pandemic Grants and Loans)


Peyton coffee

Peyton Manning was the first finalist named by the Pro Football Hall of Fame for 2021, and there is no doubt he’ll be a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer in August. They’ll make the official announcement on Saturday at the NFL Honors, before the Super Bowl on Sunday. And he’ll enter the Hall of Fame as both a Colt and Bronco. Manning is the only starting QB in NFL history to win the Super Bowl with two different teams. Manning led Denver to the playoffs in all four seasons as the Broncos’ QB during his 18 year career. When Manning retired in 2016, he held NFL records with 71940 career passing yards, 539 career passing TDs, and 13 consecutive seasons with at least 25 passing TDs. During Manning’s 2013 MVP season, he threw 55 touchdown passes for 5477 yards, breaking both NFL records!

SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUPER BOWL 55!
Kickoff at 3:30pm PST
Live from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida
(How did the Tampa Bay Buccaneers get Home Field advantage?)
First time the Super Bowl is being played in one of the team’s hometown.
And because of COVID-19, the Chiefs couldn’t travel until Friday?
It seems like an unfair advantage for Tom Brady to have…. oh well.
Unknown
Watch the game: CBS, NFL Network, ESPN Deportes,
NFL Channel, CBSSports.com and the CBSSports App

Kansas City Chiefs (14-2) AFC (Patrick Mahomes QB)
30123
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (11-5) NFC (F*CK TOM BRADY!)
5228

The Chief are the better team, Tom Brady is old.
But Tom Brady and Gronkowski have experience playing in the big game.
And the Super Bowl is a different kind of rookie “pressure” situation,
so it will all hinge on Mahomes adjusting and playing his best game.
AND if “THE FIX IS IN” as we discussed in our FOOTBALL PICKS.

The Chiefs are still favored to win, and the point spread is now -3.0
The Over/Under is now 56

Science! This kid is smart!

“Mask Up America” is President Joe Biden’s “100 Day Masking Challenge”

“Face masks help prevent people who have COVID-19, including those who are pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic, from spreading the virus to others. Masks are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used by people in public settings. Wide use of masks especially helps protect those at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 as well as workers who frequently come into close contact with other people (e.g., in airports, seaports or other docks, bus terminals, and train stations). Using masks along with other preventive measures, including social distancing, frequent hand hygiene, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces, is one of the most effective strategies available for reducing COVID-19 transmission.” – CDC

THE MASK GOES OVER YOUR NOSE!
YOUR NOSE AND MOUTH ARE CONNECTED!
COVER YOUR NOSE AND MOUTH!


WASH YOUR HANDS! with Anti-Bacterial Soap!
USE HAND SANITIZER and/or RUBBING ALCOHOL!

DO THE FIVE – HELP STOP CORONAVIRUS!
1 – HANDS – WASH YOUR HANDS! Wash them often!
2 – ELBOW (OR SLEEVE) – Cough into it, not your hand.
3 – FACE – Don’t touch it! Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth!
4 – SPACE – SOCIAL DISTANCE! Keep your distance (6 feet or more)
5 – HOME – STAY HOME if you can! (or if it’s mandatory)

REMEMBER to DISINFECT and SANITIZE frequently-touched surfaces like:
cell phones, computers (keyboard & mouse), door handles, faucets, keys. credit cards, wallets, purses, tables, desks, countertops, light switches, knobs, dials, etc.

Louis B. Mayer July 12, 1884 – October 29, 1957

Louis B. Mayer co-founded Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) studios in 1924, and for 30 years, he was the most powerful producer and studio executive in Hollywood.

#MeToo

Accused rapist Harvey Weinstein is one of the most award-winning producers in history. Films he was involved in at Miramax and The Weinstein Co. won 81 Academy Awards and (in 2015) he was second only to Steven Spielberg in the number of times thanked in Oscar acceptance speeches. Weinstein was expelled from the Academy, Hollywood, and the entertainment industry following numerous sexual assault and sexual harassment allegations going public last year. The Academy’s Board of Governors voted in an emergency meeting to remove Weinstein and said in a statement:
“We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over. What’s at issue here is a deeply troubling problem that has no place in our society. The Board continues to work to establish ethical standards of conduct that all Academy members will be expected to exemplify.”

800px-Creature_from_the_Black_Lagoon_poster

“It’s time for Oscar to take center stage,
This guy’s had work done, he never shows his age,
He’s ninety-two now, but still all the rage,
That’s why the Oscar, that is why the Oscar,
That’s why Oscar is a champ!

The Streaker at the Oscars!

Robert Opel a conceptual artist, photographer, gallery owner, teacher, and gay rights activist “streaked” the Academy Awards on live television. He ran onstage nude flashing a peace sign at the 46th award ceremony in 1974.

David Niven, the Host of the show (interrupted while introducing Elizabeth Taylor):
“Well, ladies and gentlemen, that was almost bound to happen…. Isn’t it fascinating to think that probably the only laugh that man will ever get in life is by stripping off and showing his shortcomings?”

After running offstage, Opel put on a jumpsuit and blended in with the reporters. When he was caught, he wasn’t arrested, he was taken backstage and gave a press conference.

We like Sally Field!

“And I can’t deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me.”
– Sally Field accepting the Best Actress Academy Award in 1985 for “Places in the Heart”
(She also won a Best Actress Oscar for “Norma Rae” in 1980)

Francis Ford Coppola

“Who knows who will win the Oscar,
Only Price-Waterhouse can say,
So, if you want the answers…
…May I have the envelope please!”

Accountants from PricewaterhouseCoopers count all the ballots, oversee Academy elections (as well as the Oscars) and they also do the Academy’s taxes.
The Academy has used sealed envelopes to protect the names of the winners since 1941.

Summer in Los Angeles! ‘Tis the Season for Hot Pursuits & Car Chases!

Summer in Los Angeles! ‘Tis the Season for Hot Pursuits & Car Chases!

Yesterday there were two car chases involving the Los Angeles Police Department within an hour. The first was only broadcast for a little while, but was KRAZY out of control.  He was driving like a madman and had a couple of collisions along the way, almost hitting a pedestrian or two, until the suspect lost control making a turn on a surface street and crashed head-on into a telephone pole and steel fence.

Suspect in Custody:

20229034_1891741204185770_1591611142478946022_n

Tiene un accidente!

And the second one was over before the helicopter arrived, with the suspect surrendering after running from the San Fernando Valley to Central LA.

Suspect in Custody:

20139904_1891788127514411_1373606847833208857_n

Over before it began….

Two hot pursuits on TV in a hour is a good chase day, and there were also televised pursuits on Monday night and Tuesday night too.

BIG THANKS to the news and the helicopter pilots and reporters!
BIG THANKS to the LAPD for their hard work!

NOTE: The Police have helicopters and radios in addition to guns and a gang of armed uniformed (and undercover) soldiers. Chances are good you will go to jail if you attempt to run from them. However, everyday people still take their chances and for that we thank them for the entertainment.

“Where’s The Beef?”

WARNING! Vegans and Vegetarians may want to skip this Blog.

wendys-wheres-the-beef

Clara Peller asks “Where’s The Beef?” in 1984

Beef is the name for meat from cattle.
Beef can be harvested from bulls, cows, heifers or steers.

11080831_1104212816271950_5404358063322694447_o

Habit Burger Grill – Double BBQ Bacon Charburger with Cheese!

“Let’s Play Know Your Cuts of Meat!” – David Letterman

Beef muscle (MEAT) is cut into roasts, short ribs or steaks.
Cuts: filet mignon, sirloin steak, rump steak, rib steak, rib eye steak, hanger steak, etc.
Some cuts are processed (corned beef and beef jerky) and trimmings are ground, minced or used in sausages. Blood is used in some varieties of blood sausage.
Other parts: the oxtail, liver, tongue, tripe from the reticulum or rumen, glands (the pancreas and thymus are called sweetbreads), the heart, the brain, the kidneys and testicles (called calf friesprairie oysters or Rocky Mountain oysters in the U.S.) are eaten too. Some intestines are cooked and eaten, but more often they are cleaned and used as natural sausage casings. The bones are used for making beef stock and gelatin.

Beef is the third most consumed meat in the world, accounting for about 25% of meat production worldwide (after pork 38% and poultry 30%).

“Where’s The Beef?”

Beef is first divided into primal cuts during butchering.
Primal cuts are large pieces of meat initially separated from the animal’s carcass.
Steaks and other subdivisions are cut from these basic sections.

How did “Where’s The Beef?” become a part of the American vocabulary and an all-purpose phrase questioning the substance of an idea, event or product?

clara_peller_publicity_headshot
Clara Peller (August 4, 1902 – August 11, 1987) was a manicurist and American character actress. Born on August 4, 1902 in Russia, she came to the United States at the age of 5 with an uncle and lived in Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 81, Clara starred in the 1984 “Where’s The Beef?” advertising campaign for Wendy’s restaurants, created by the Dancer Fitzgerald Sample advertising agency.

At age 80, Clara was hired as a manicurist for a television commercial set in a Chicago barbershop. Impressed by her no-nonsense manners and unique voice, the agency signed her. She was hard of hearing and had emphysema, which limited her ability to speak long lines of dialogue, and she appeared in many TV commercials. She first attracted attention as a comical cleaning lady in an ad for the new Massachusetts State Lottery game “Megabucks” in the late 1970s and later became a national cultural phenomenon  in a series of commercials for the Wendy’s Restaurant chain.

First aired on January 10, 1984, the Wendy’s commercial “Fluffy Bun” portrayed a fictional competitor “Home of the Big Bun” where three elderly ladies are complaining about an enormous hamburger bun containing a tiny hamburger patty. Two of the women comment on the size of the bun and they are interrupted by Peller’s character, who looks around in vain  while making the outraged demand: “Where’s The Beef?”

“Where’s The Beef?” became a catchphrase (before viral video) across the United States.
The actress made the three-word phrase a cultural phenomenon, achieved Andy Warhol’s “15 minutes of fame” and became an instant star. Sequels to the spots featured her yelling her famous line in various scenes and her face and the slogan were merchandised on shirts, hats, buttons, mugs, glasses, bumper stickers, frisbees, games, a commemorative plate, and all sorts of other products. Nashville songwriter and DJ Coyote McCloud wrote and performed a hit song entitled “Where’s the Beef?” released as a promotional single for Wendy’s featuring Clara Peller.

“Where’s The Beef?” – The Game!

Wendy’s sales jumped 31% to $945 million in 1985 worldwide. Wendy’s Senior VP of Communications Denny Lynch said at the time that “with Clara we accomplished as much in five weeks as we did in 14½ years.” Former Vice-President Walter Mondale also used the line in his bid for the Democratic nomination in the 1984 presidential campaign.

The campaign ended in 1985 when Clara did a commercial for Campbell’s Prego pasta sauce, where she declares “I found it! I really found it!” After the Prego commercial aired, Wendy’s management decided to terminate her contract. Clara’s response: “I’ve made them millions and they don’t appreciate me.” Following her termination and the conclusion of the “Where’s The Beef?” campaign, Wendy’s suffered a 2 year sales slump and consumer awareness of the Wendy’s brand did not recover for another five years!

NOTE: According to an A&E biography, “Where’s The Beef?” was actually an error made by Clara who was supposed to say “Where’s all the beef?” And another story says the line was shortened because of her emphysema.

Clara was paid scale for the first commercial and claimed she only made about $30,000 from the commercials, but Wendy’s claimed she was paid about $500,000 for her work. Clara also appeared in other commercials, did interviews and guest spots (including a cameo on “Saturday Night Live” in April 1984), made other appearances, and she had a small role in the feature film “Moving Violations.”

Clara Peller died in on August 11, 1987, one week after her 85th birthday.

“Where’s The Beef?”



“Rockin’ Good Times!” A Cable Television Variety Show for $100!

“Rockin’ Good Times!”
starring Stan Davis and The Congregation

Produced by Joshua Weisel for Cable Access Television

15541958_1607641685929058_8870047218573019252_n

30 minute Variety Show
Shot LIVE in 1997 at TCI Cable Studio in Sherman Oaks for under $100.

15578478_1607641715929055_1556826918245758433_n

Opening Number “Underwater” followed by the Host’s monologue (standup comedy performed by Stan Davis), 2nd musical number “Lemondrop” and the interview and introductions with the band followed by the closing number “Turn It Out”.

The Congregation “Underwater” performed on “Rockin’ Good Times!”

The Congregation “Lemondrop” with interview and introductions by Stan Davis

The Congregation “Turn It Out” performed on “Rockin’ Good Times!”

NOTE: The program was shot LIVE on tape without any interruption or break. Unfortunately, most of the “technical details” were beyond our control and we were at the mercy of the Cable Access Television crew and their equipment for the video and audio.

SECOND NOTE: Unfortunately, the Host Monologue/Stand Up Comedy portion of the show starring Stan Davis was not uploaded with the musical numbers and interview.

tci

Once upon a time the giant cable companies were mandated to provide facilities and airtime for Public Cable Access. Pro and Con Productions decided to use this avenue to produce and shoot a “Demo” for a 30 minute variety show we called “Rockin’ Good Times!” and hosted by our talented management client at the time Stan Davis. We enlisted The Congregation and their manager, who we had met when we worked at Warner Brothers Records A&R, to be the musical guest.

Studio time and equipment was provided for FREE by TCI Cable in Sherman Oaks (which would later become Time-Warner and now Spectrum) after attending an orientation and training class. The equipment was far from “state of the art” (and so was the crew) but it was free, functioning and able to produce adequate broadcast quality video. Our studio time was also very limited, so we set-up, blocked, shot and struck the show in about two hours without any time for in-studio rehearsal.

We paid for the 3/4″ mastering and VHS videotapes. We also provided refreshments for our cast, crew and very limited audience. Total cost was under $100 for the entire production.

Public access studio time: $0 , two 3/4″ & two 1/2″ videotapes: $48, finding your vids posted on YouTube 14 years later: PRICELESS! (found it online in 2012)

“Rockin’ Good Times!” is currently available for airing on 3/4″ Video Master or VHS video.
Contact me if you would like to view the entire program and/or fund the next episode.
